More than a "medical malpractice boutique," HDBD is an experienced trial litigation firm with broad, across-the-board experience representing physicians, nurses, hospitals, hospital administrators and employees, clinics, nursing homes and governmental agencies.
Not only have we defended individual doctors and nurses against malpractice claims made against them, but we have also represented hospitals and clinics against claims of improper patient care, premises liability and improper Medicare and Medicaid billing. Furthermore, we have effectively defended medical providers (both individuals and hospitals) in Qui Tam litigation, in which the U.S. government is seeking to recoup Medicare and Medicaid payments that the government believes should not have been made.
Our firm has successfully defended healthcare-related industries, such as pharmacies, pharmaceutical manufacturers and producers of healthcare products (hip implants, pacemakers, heart-lung machines, etc.) in litigation, both in Texas and elsewhere in the country.
Moreover, HDBD's experience in representing healthcare providers extends beyond litigation. We have mediated several contract negotiations between physicians and hospitals, we have defended hospital districts against counties seeking to misconstrue and take advantage of their contracts, and we have assisted in drafting and interpreting hospital regulations.
We coordinate our efforts with our clients, and we always keep our clients' business interests first and foremost in our minds. HDBD's goal is to identify high-risk problems early and to provide economical and efficient solutions that will allow the healthcare providers we defend to continue to provide high-quality healthcare at reasonable rates, with reduced risk of claims and litigation.
